Incoming Students


Welcome incoming Theatre students! We have compiled a number of resources which you may find helpful as you navigate the process of visiting, auditioning, and settling in to your new home at Loyola. Feel free to browse the items below.

Auditions and Performances

  • There is no audition required for acceptance to the Theatre Major. However, we offer Scholarship Auditions for incoming students. These auditions typically take place in the beginning of February. For more information about Scholarship Auditions, click here.

  • Click here to browse past Theatre productions.

  • Click here to browse our upcoming Theatre season.

  • Interested in attending performances throughout the season? The Department of Fine and Performing Arts offers a Student Pass for Theatre, Music, and Dance. This pass is a flat rate that then allows students to redeem it for tickets to certain performances.

  • Auditions for actors, singers and dancers are held periodically throughout the year. Functioning much like the class-specific Sakai spaces, the THTR PROGRAM Sakai is the best place to find any announcements or information regarding upcoming opportunities. Please email dfpamc@luc.edu to be added to the site.

Student Opportunities

  • In addition to performance opportunities, there are many opportunities to be involved in our Production Program at Loyola. During your time here, we hope that you will have an opportunity to explore as many facets of a production as possible. Click here for more information about these positions.

  • There are also a variety of internship ooportunities available for Theatre students. Click here for more information about internships.
